Local construction businesses thrive against the odds by Sarah Allen SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

As Dakota County moves toward economic recovery, employment in the construction sector continues to improve. Battling against soggy spring weather conditions, a depleted housing market, and an emptied job pool, the sector is rebounding. Minnesota construction employment boomed in May, adding 1,000 jobs for the month, according to the Department of Employment and Economic Development. This compares to the 8,400 jobs added in all sectors in Minnesota in May. These jobs mark a 1 percent increase in construction for the state, a 7 percent increase for the metro area, and 4,000 new construction jobs since May of last year. A major contributor to the sudden jump of employment is the end of a prolonged Minnesota winter. Gene Stimpson, owner of Gene’s Apple Valley Construction since 1982, said his small

North Trail principal wins Lincoln fellowship Dr. Steven Geis visits Abraham Lincoln’s homeland by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Students of North Trail Elementary: Your principal wants to see you. He wants to tell you about the law of the land and the men who wrote it. Principal Steven Geis wants to talk to you about Abraham Lincoln and the U.S. Constitution. Already a fan of U.S. history, Geis spent a week in June in Springfield, Ill., studying Abraham Lincoln through the Horace Mann Fellowship program. He toured the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and listened to lectures by library staff and Lincoln experts. “It was an intense crash course on Lincoln,” Geis said. “I’m already thinking about ways I can share it with my students. I’m excited to share the fellowship with the other educators and students.” He was one of 50 teachers and school administrators in the country who won a trip to study Lincoln with the fellowship program. “Most people know the last five

his eventual death, while visiting in his tomb. One highlight for Geis was when he spent a day looking through historical documents. “I held in my hand a letter written by Frederick Douglas and Civil War generals,” Geis said. “To be able to read those primary sources was enlightening. I looked at the first draft of the Gettysburg Address.” He also witnessed a re-enactment of what would have happened had Lincoln not been assassinated. “They were speculating on how things would be different,” Geis said. “He suspended writ of habeas corpus. Would he have been impeached? I don’t know. It was fascinating.” The experience was provided by Horace Mann, a multiline insurance Steven Geis company focusing on educators’ fiyears of his life, but this course fo- nancial needs.

Council approves additional fire department funding Increase of $13,000 slated for retirement contribution by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Farmington City Council approved the Farmington Fire Department’s request during Monday’s meeting to build its retirement fund. The council approved a $13,000 increase in funding for the Fire Relief Association retirement contributions for 2014 and beyond with an in-depth review in 2017. To move was in response to a Fire Department presentation during a work session on June 8. The city’s contribution was $137,000 last year, but the firefighters asked for an increase citing a rise in anticipated retirements.

The 4-1 decision wasn’t unanimous. Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty expressed concerns that it may be too much. With state restrictions that cap the levy next year at 3 percent, the council has been careful with increases in spending. “I would want to annually fund it,” she said at the meeting. “In the next couple years it’s going to balance out. At some point in time it’s going to level out where we’re funding more than we’re required.” Fogarty said years ago the relief association was well over 100 percent funded when the association asked for an increase in retirement payments. “Unfortunately, I was

told that not all the members were going to (retire) and they all went,” Fogarty said. “It really depleted the fund. As bad luck would have it, the stock market crashed and put a hard hit on their investments.” Fogarty said she’s a strong supporter of public safety and the fire department, “but it’s an honest evaluation but the result of those two big events happening in very quick succession cost the taxpayers quite a bit of money and quite honestly probably cost a couple people their jobs. It’s hard for me to want to commit money when so much had to be restored. But that’s no fault of the current members.

“The economy can change very quickly. No matter what, we are on the hook to make sure this fund is 100 percent funded.” The city pays a pension for firefighters, and about 17 people could retire with in the next few years. The association could pay out as much as $797,000, worst case, within the next few years.

Joint meeting The City Council will hold a joint meeting with the School District 192 School Board at 5:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall. The public is invited to attend. Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Dew Days a success, financially and otherwise Committee paying down debt from 2009 by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

One way to measure whether Farmington’s Dew Days was a success is by viewing the smiles and laughter during the community festival. But the mid-June festival also needs to be profitable if organizers want to keep those smiles coming. Four years ago, there were a few more frowns than anyone was comfortable with. In 2009, Dew Days needed to take out a loan from the area cities to cover more than a $20,000 deficit because of low attendance. The community festival took place at

the Dakota County Fairgrounds. In 2013, Dew Days is back in a big way, and the debt is close to being paid off. “We’ve had a core group of people working on this for the past four years, and this year was by far the best,” Dew Days chairperson Darla Donnelly said. “We’re hoping to keep paying down the loans. The city and the local entities loaned out money. I think maybe next year we’ll be close to paying it off, especially if next year turns out like this year.” Two new events really stood out. The tent for “beer, brats and bingo” on Wednesday quickly filled up with 250 to 300 people. “Flavors of Farmington” brought out more than 280 people to the beer gardens again on Thurs-

day. The new bean bag tournament was also a hit. Next year they expect to expand it because of the high level of interest. “I don’t think that many people knew about it,” Donnelly said. “We’ll have more bags set up next year.” The regularly scheduled events also saw a boost in attendance, according to Donnelly. Dew Days featured bed and foot races; softball and bean bag tournaments; a medallion hunt; a Saturday night party in the beer garden featuring the Dweebs; and, of course, a parade. “There were a lot of very happy Farmingtonites,” Donnelly said.

Opinion Key to making Minnesota safer: Call 911 by Don Heinzman SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

When Minnesota Commissioner of Public Safety Ramona Dohman was asked her No. 1 wish to make Minnesota safer, she quickly answered: Call 911 right away when you see anything or anyone suspicious, and call at any hour of any day. Police chiefs in our suburban communities agree. Don’t hesitate to call when you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood. They’d rather have the call and check it out than learn about a crime the next day. Many burglaries in the Twin Cities area communities have been solved because of “tips” to local police departments. When these chiefs speak to the public, they preach the need to follow the saying “If you see something, say something,” a campaign being waged by Homeland

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Don Heinzman Security to raise public awareness of terrorism and suspected terrorists. So far in our area, tips have not led to suspected terrorists. A check with local police chiefs, however, reveals crimes, particularly daytime burglaries, have been solved thanks to tips from the public. Edina Police Chief Jeff Long recalled when someone saw a teen loitering in a neighborhood called 911 and the teen turned out to be a burglar. In Elk River, Police Chief Brad Rolfe said a woman got up in the middle of the night, looked out her window and saw a

man peering in the window of another townhome. Police responded and, thanks to a footprint that matched the shoes the guy was wearing, eventually eight burglaries were solved. Police Chief Mike Risvold of Wayzata recalled a retailer who noticed a suspicious vehicle and on checking it out, police were able to identify and charge a burglar. Sometimes people see things and don’t want to get involved or don’t think it’s important. For instance, Rohlf wishes a woman had called in the middle of the night when she saw someone pushing a snowmobile trailer down the street. The next day she learned about a theft of the trailer from a house near hers. That thief was never caught. Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts has an amazing network of 700 block captains watching for anyone suspicious. Four hundred neighborhood groups are organized to keep their city safe. Now

Potts is trying to organize the 2,000 businesses in the city to act when they see anyone doing strange things. Like other chiefs, Potts recalled a tip the police got, resulting in clearing up a number of burglaries. Long said sometimes we make it easy for burglars by leaving car doors unlocked. He said 80 percent of thefts are from unlocked vehicles. How will you know when to call police? You’ll know in “your gut” and from experience when there’s suspicious activity. And like the slogan says, “If you see something, say something.” You, too, could be a crime solver. Don Heinzman is a columnist for ECM Publishers and a member of the ECM Editorial Board.

Encouraging but limited view of charter public school progress by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Families may be interested in a new national report about charter and district public schools. Whether they have students attending Paideia Academy in Apple Valley, STEP in Inver Grove Heights, or a district, private or parochial school, the report contains encouraging information. However, the study also has important limitations. This is the second major national report done by the Center for Research on Educational Options at Stanford University. The first was in 2009. This year’s report covers public schools in Minnesota, the District of Columbia, 26 states and New York City, which researchers “treated separately as the city differs dramatically from the rest of the state.” CREDO says that 95 percent of the nation’s charter public school students live in these states and districts. The report focuses exclusively on gains in statewide reading and math scores – important but not the only important ways to judge students and schools. CREDO found: • Overall, gains since 2009 in reading and math. • Larger increases in scores for African

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan American, Hispanic, English language learners and students from low-income families. • Gains partly because some lowperforming schools were closed and new schools opened, plus improvements in some existing schools. CREDO’s researchers recommended closing more low-performing schools and studying “what plans, what models, what personnel attributes and what internal systems provide the appropriate signals that lead to high performing schools.” (The report is at http://credo. stanford.edu.) So CREDO’s report shows that some charters are helping close achievement gaps. That’s encouraging. What are the report’s limitations? First, responding to a question I asked, CREDO research manager Devora Davos acknowledged that the study included “only a very few high school

students in Minnesota and only for reading, because it is tested in grade 10.” This information should have been in the report. Second, what’s important about schools? Most people think about several factors, such as program, attendance, safety and, in secondary schools, graduation rates. Bob Wedl, former Minnesota commissioner of education, and I agree that it’s also valuable to know what percentages of a school’s students earn college credits and attend some form of one-, two- or four-year post-secondary program. CREDO’s report covers none of those issues. The report also continues an unfortunate tendency of some researchers, advocates and critics of district and charter public school: It tries to compare dramatically different schools. For example, Minnesota has district and charter public schools that are arts-focused; Montessori; American Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Hmong, Russian and Spanish immersion; classical; International Baccalaureate; project-based; online; and “second chance.” Can we compare gas mileage of leased and rented cars? No, it’s meaningless because cars in both categories vary widely.

The same applies to district and charters. We should be learning from district and charters serving similar populations whose students make significant progress – and not just on tests. Tom Watkins, former Michigan State superintendent of public instruction wrote: “Too much of the education debate is traditional school versus charter school ... Political rhetoric has never educated a single child. ... We need to get to the point that the only adjective that matters before the word school is quality.” Tony Simmons, co-director of High School for Recording Arts, an awardwinning Minnesota charter, criticized “this false debate of charters vs. district schools. Each should be used to inform the other regarding best practices and move more toward cooperation and collaboration. ... The question any family or student should have in choosing a school is whether a given school, charter or district is a good choice for their needs and expectations.” Joe Nathan, formerly a Minnesota public school teacher, directs the Center for School Change. Reactions welcome, joe@ centerforschoolchange.org. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Correction A July 11 story about the Farmington School District moving its administrative offices should have noted that the community entrance to Farmington High School will now be at the east side instead of the south. A July 11 story about elk farming should have noted that the state has two elk hide tanning operations in Duluth and Owatonna. Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune regret the errors.

Let’s talk about the atmosphere To the editor: I am in complete agreement with the July 5 letter writer’s call for “features in these newspapers” on the atmosphere. Let’s have a discussion on how we are apparently back to 400 ppm of carbon in the atmosphere, last seen “some millions of years in the past.” Perhaps the same natural cause then is the natural cause now. Let’s discuss how the operative phrase has changed from “global warming” to “climate

change.” Nice trick. One could at least debate the cause of short term global warming, but what’s the point of discussing “climate change”? Certainly it’s either getting warmer or cooler. I’ll concede that point. But we’re talking about cycles in the 10s and 100s of millions of years. Earth has gone through numerous ice ages. In fact we are in the midst of the most current one. The earth has cooled and warmed over the past few 100,000 years. Even the most ardent environmental extremist would have a tough time blaming that on human intervention. KEVIN SCHLEPPENBACH Apple Valley

ECM editorial is right To the editor: Congratulations to ECM Publishers for the editorial titled, “Nation’s poor will suffer deeply from food stamp cuts.” I’ve often skimmed lead editorials, since they didn’t seem to want to rock the boat, but not this time. The editorial is right: We

miss the plight of the poor who will suffer these cuts, particularly contrasted with middle class decisions to vacation at the Wisconsin Dells instead of Disney World. It is very hard for most of us to truly grasp the meaning of hunger, especially a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program that provides less than $5 per day per person in food stamp support. That’s approximately a large latte and two candy bars. The other side of the Farm Bill was not addressed, which I feel is a major issue. While $20 billion in cuts are being proposed to the SNAP program, $920 billion remained in farm subsidies. The vast majority go to the largest agribusinesses in this country. Both sides of the aisle lament this corporate welfare without effect. Why? Once again, the influence of money in politics is clear. Highly paid lobbyists, many former legislators, spend numerous hours on Capitol Hill courting former colleagues to retain programs their clients love. Further, some of these agribusinesses pay little or no taxes. A “wag of the finger”

goes to my congressman. He may be silent on the issue, but his silence speaks volumes. This has been consistent for U.S. Rep. John Kline: Hear no evil, neither see nor speak any (unless it’s about ObamaCare). The poor are staring at a bleak future, while the largest of our corporations gather more welfare.

Forever paved? To the editor: The county commissioner’s letter in the July 12 issue, “Lebanon Hills survey explained,” unfortunately explained very little. Commissioner Tom Egan’s stated refusal to “idly sit by” while citizens mention his park system’s own survey results and his steak dinner analogy have only served to reduce the level of logic in this public discussion. The commissioner argues that just because only one-third responded “in support of paved trails” it is not reasonable to conclude the remaining twothirds as being “opposed” to asphalting. OK, then, we’ll restate what is fact: From the survey’s results, two-thirds of the respondents did not in any way indicate being “in support” of paving trails. Any support for paving he feels is within this segment is imaginary until substantiated. Furthermore, the commissioner then recites a second survey where 66 percent of the respondents supported “trail networks for hiking, biking and skiing” as if further evidence

that the respondents wanted their hiking, biking and skiing trails to be asphalt. Steak dinner? This is more like: Where’s the beef ? How were these dots connected? This has been a public relations fiasco for the planners. I’ve seen many letters opposed to Lebanon’s paving and few in support other than the commissioner, who has been quoted often on the topic. If they really wish to proceed with these park modifications without appearing to be railroading some unpopular master plan, they would be wise to reopen the design process and allow further hearings, input and education. Nobody wants this beautiful park to become a maze of asphalt. I’m sure that includes Commissioner Egan. The problem is each little bit of development establishes the baseline for the next. First a small loop, now just a “few” miles. Lights? Kiosks? The future will expand it from there. Once developed it never reverts.

Old rhetoric doesn’t work To the editor: In response to the letter, “John Kline votes regularly against women’s rights,” we would like to voice the opposite opinion. The proposed legislation by U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, does not restrict women’s rights. In fact, such legislation

provides women with the truth and options so that they can make the best choice for the baby and for themselves. Since the ruling in Roe v. Wade in 1972, new developments in technology have enabled the medical community to better comprehend a child’s growth and development within the womb. Research clearly documents that at five months of pregnancy (stated as 20 weeks in the proposed law) the developing child can indeed feel pain. Video documentation of abortion procedures demonstrates this; unborn children move away from the impending needle, which when inserted will cause pain and death. In many cases (also documented), unborn children are delivered in a viable state and extra ordinary means are taken to end their lives. How does restricting abortions after 20 weeks restrict our rights as women? Most women today know they are pregnant long before they have reached five months. Those who feel abortion should be safe and rare (a term used by most in the pro-choice movement) should be supporting this bill 100 percent. Abortion after five months is not safe for the child or the mother. Since half of the children aborted are future women, we feel that this bill indeed protects women’s rights. It is time to stop using old rhetoric in order to continue to sway voters against the facts. Legislation that would protect a viable child is indeed worthy. We believe Kline’s views have been in line with his constituents for over a decade. We will find it out again in 2014. SHARON BLATZHEIM Apple Valley JULIE ORTH Apple Valley

Top student,athlete, friend Taylor Ziebol, 19, killed in Kansas car crash by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A nearly 20-year age difference didn’t keep Taylor Ziebol and Jen Waller McDevitt from becoming close friends. Waller McDevitt was Taylor’s 11th-grade English teacher at Burnsville High School. Last summer, after Taylor had graduated and before she set out for Ripon College in Wisconsin, the pair pounded pavement together, training for a half marathon. “So we had lots of time together to just pour out our hearts,” Waller McDevitt said. “She wasn’t like other teenagers. She was very mature, very understanding, compassionate.” Taylor, who was staying with Waller McDevitt’s family this summer, left their Burnsville home at around 7:30 p.m. July 10, headed for El Paso, Texas, with her two younger siblings to visit their grandparents. Taylor, 19, was killed the next morning, after the family’s Nissan Murano she was driving crossed the center line and struck a semi truck head on near Dodge City, Kan. The crash occurred at about 7 a.m. on U.S. Highway 54. Taylor died a short time later at Western Plains Regional Hospital. Her siblings are recovering from their injuries. Shannon Ziebold, 17, is doing “great” after having had her appendix and some of her intestines removed, Waller McDevitt said Monday. She said Adam Ziebold, 15, had more extensive internal injuries and was still under sedation. The semi truck driver, 56-year-old Raymond Noriega of California, was also hospitalized, the Kansas State Patrol reported. The Ziebols had stopped at a McDonald’s for a “much-needed caffeine break” at about 5 a.m., Waller McDevitt said. “The semi driver saw (the Ziebol vehicle) and veered out of his way as much as he could, which is what they say saved Adam and Shannon’s life,” she said. Taylor Ziebol was a high achiever in the classroom and on the soccer field, where she started 15 of 18 games as a midfielder for the Ripon Red Hawks in her freshman year. “We’re heartbroken,” Ripon

Taylor Ziebol, right, was photographed with her siblings, Shannon and Adam, before they set out on their road trip to El Paso, Texas. (Photo submitted)

Taylor exuded “positive energy wherever she went, and whatever she had going on in her life, she always came in with that great attitude,” Nicollet Principal Renee Brandner said. She babysat for several of her teachers and visited her old schools on breaks from college. She sent Brandner an email this winter saying she was switching majors to secondary education and wanted to teach science. “I worked closely with her,” the principal said. “She was so bright and capable.” Taylor, whose father died when she was in second grade, often reached out to teachers she was close to during difficult times, Waller McDevitt said. She has stayed with McDevitts a number of times and babysat their children, 9-year-old twins Arelys and Keegan and 4-year-old Connor. “As her aunt said, it took a village to raise Taylor,” Waller McDevitt said fondly. Taylor’s father, Michael, died when she was in second grade. She and her siblings were going to visit his parents when the crash occurred. Taylor was involved with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and active in her church, Prince of Peace in Burnsville. She worked at the Target store in Lakeville during high school and on breaks from college. Her mother and stepfather, Lesa and James Hess, live in Burnsville with Shannon and Adam. Lesa had recently bought the Nissan Murano for the kids to use, Waller McDevitt said. “I think what’s so hard for everybody to understand is how somebody so alive cannot be here,” she said. “And she had this incessant love for her family. She and her mom were incredibly close. She took care of her brother and sister.” The Ziebol Family Memorial Fund has been established through Wells Fargo Bank. Checks should be made out to “Ziebol Family” and can be mailed to or dropped off at any Wells Fargo office.

head women’s soccer coach Sam Schroeder said in a statement on the team website. “Taylor epitomized what it means to be a good teammate and a good person. She set an example for us all every single day. We will miss Taylor’s limitless energy, determined spirit, and ever-positive outlook.” She had strong personal connections with many educators in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, all the way back to her days at Gideon Pond Elementary, Waller McDevitt said. “Taylor and I formed an instant bond when she was in my 11thgrade class,” said Waller McDevitt, whose husband, David, is a Burnsville High social studies teacher. “She would stay after school with me and just want to talk. That’s what Taylor did. She was close to many teachers in our school district.” She took post-secondary classes for two years, her senior year at Normandale Community College. Also during her senior year, Taylor tutored two days a week in the AVID college-readiness program at Nicollet Junior High, which she John Gessner can be reached had attended, and did volunteer at 952-846-2031 or email work in the office. john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

Color me therapy offered Eagan nonprofit Art for Everyone provides art therapy to all ages by Sarah Allen

we had people sitting on the floor – it was pretty amazing.� The group formed with the help of the Tea Party Minnesota PAC, according to Tricia Fischer, another of the group’s organizers. It’s one of two metro-area Tea Party groups to form recently – the East Metro Tea Party, based in Lake Elmo, began meeting in April. “The main goal of our Tea Party is to educate with facts,� Fischer said. “Like-minded people can socialize and learn how to be an active voice in our communities. The meetings are open to all – Republican, Democrat, Independent and other.� The South Metro Tea Party’s next meeting is scheduled for Tues-

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

People of all ages are welcome to get their hands dirty in the name of art therapy at a new nonprofit called Art for Everyone. Julie Schroeder, owner of Color Me Mine in Eagan, created the nonprofit earlier this year to provide painting workshops and summer camps free of charge. It offers people a chance to take art relaxation and therapy into their own hands at Schroeder’s local painting and pottery studio. During the school year, Color Me Mine provides after-school ceramics and clay classes for children in School District 196 and Oakridge Elementary. Every Tuesday and Thursday, children can attend the classes and choose to paint one of 300 different premade ceramics. Each class has a different theme, including movies “Toy Story� and “Finding Nemo.� As much as 41 percent of kids that Schroeder works with are under the poverty

line. According to Schroeder, many children struggle to pay for the classes. With workshops running anywhere from $30 to $60 and summer camps running at $45, Schroeder hopes that her nonprofit can provide scholarships to cover the charge for students in need. She also aims to provide art therapy for adults who could benefit from the programs. Schroeder teaches a weekly class to members of Breaking Free, a St. Paulbased nonprofit that provides housing and services for survivors of sex trafficking. Women from Breaking Free attend painting and jewelry-making classes through the organizations’s paid internship and job skills program. Art therapy techniques give these women a chance to cope with their personal anxieties. Pieces created by the women are sold in a survivor-made boutique, which generates funding for Breaking Free’s programs. The boutique internship program also provides the women a source of income, which will help them transition into the workforce when exiting the program. “Julie’s passion for and vision of providing access to Art for Everyone is evident the instant you meet her,� said Hannah Theisen, an event coordinator at Breaking Free. “It has been such a joy to work with Julie and to watch the women in Breaking Free’s boutique program blossom in both

their confidence and artistic skill.� Schroeder said she hopes that Art for Everyone can provide scholarships for the women from Breaking Free and others like them. Schroeder also aspires to take on new challenges this fall by bringing art therapy to children’s hospitals. Her idea has quickly sparked volunteer interest. “So many people already want to volunteer,� Schroeder said. “A lot of the children are in the hospital long-term, so they would get their piece back and it would be free of charge.� While families are already under financial stress, Schroeder wants to provide a free outlet for their kids to relax and have fun. The American Art Therapy Association’s website states that creating art can increase awareness of self and others and help people to cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences. Although she is not a specialist herself, Schroeder sees the effects of art therapy on children and adults alike. “I see people are stressed and kids are wound up. When they come in to paint, it is so obvious to see the relaxation that comes from it,� she said. Schroeder sees art therapy as taking focus away from the busy surrounding world to a single calming

task. She also believes that art is a child’s way of learning and expressing himself. Over the past few years, school budgets cuts have greatly reduced art programs for children. Schroeder views her painting classes as a chance for young people to fulfill their diminished creative outlets. “Art has been cut in a lot of schools. Many parents are struggling and can’t afford to pick up art supplies,� Schroeder said. Art for Everyone scholarships could provide lowincome families a chance to give their children artistic experiences. Schroeder’s inspiration for creating Art for Everyone stems from her passion to support the community. Schroeder is active in her church and known at the local food shelf. She created Food Shelf Wednesdays at Color Me Mine, for which attendees can bring in food shelf donations to receive a half-price studio fee. Currently, the nonprofit has been slow to take off. Schroeder is seeking help from the community through volunteer work. Volunteers can help with workshops, at summer camps or at children’s hospitals for one to two hours per week. Schroeder is also seeking donations from the community to support Art for Everyone. Interested volunteers and donors can visit www.artforevery1.org. Email Sarah Allen dc.intern@ecm-inc.com.

Highway 3 work to close road Aug. 2-5 Highway 3 is scheduled to be closed to all traffic from 142nd Street West to 140th Circle beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2.

Increased noise and lights are expected from the construction activity during this time.

Questions or concerns about the road closure or the underpass project should be directed to the Rosemount Public Works/ Engineering Department at 651-322-2022.

cycle safety checks, fixing a flat, on-bike skills, and crash avoidance techniques. It is recommended for adults and children above age 14. The course will be held Aug. 9-10 at Rosemount City Hall, 2875 145th St. W. For more information, contact Planner Jason Lindahl at jason.lindahl@ ci.rosemount.mn.us or (651) 322-2090. Those who are avid bicyclists are encouraged to contact Lindahl to share their stories. The city is looking to profile bicyclists’ reasons for riding, how they stay safe and their favorite places to ride.

Burnsville man, former radio host, gets 20 years for Ponzi scheme A 75-year-old Burnsville man was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison in connection with the multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Trevor Cook. Patrick Kiley was sentenced in U.S. District Court on 12 counts of wire and mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and two counts of money laundering, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota. Because the federal criminal justice system has no parole, Kiley will spend virtually his entire sentence behind bars. Kiley and his co-defendants, who have been already sentenced, have been ordered to pay $155.36 million in restitution to the victims of their fraud scheme, which generated $194 million from investors. Kiley was convicted on

June 12, 2012, after a nearly two-month trial. On Jan. 3, Jason Bo-Alan Beckman, 43, of Plymouth, was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison on 17 counts of wire and mail fraud, two counts of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, four counts of money laundering, two counts of filing a false tax return and one count of tax evasion. Gerald Joseph Durand, 62, of Faribault, was sentenced to 20 years on 12 counts of wire and mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, two counts of money laundering, two counts of concealing a material fact from the United States and three counts of filing a false tax return. Christopher Pettengill, 56, of Plymouth, was sentenced to 90 months on one count of securities fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit wire

fraud and one count of money laundering. Evidence presented at trial proved that between 2005 and November 2009, the defendants, along with Cook, defrauded investors by soliciting them to invest money in a foreign currency trading program that they alleged would earn a double-digit rate of return, typically between 10.5 and 12 percent annually, with little or no risk. They also claimed investor assets would be held in a segregated account and could be withdrawn at any time. Those representations were false. The defendants and Cook made the investment offers through entities known as Universal Brokerage Services or bearing the acronym UBS. The UBS entities had no legitimate affiliation to the global provider of financial services UBS, AG. Cook operated the cur-

rency program through various foreign currency trading firms, including but not limited to one in Chicago and another in Switzerland. To induce investors, the defendants and Cook, directly or through others, made false representations regarding the performance, safety, and liquidity of the currency program. They also omitted material information concerning their own backgrounds and qualifications as well as the backgrounds and qualifications of those working for them. Once investments were made, some investors received UBS account statements that indicated the currency program was performing as promised, while others received checks for “returns on their investments.” Both the statements and checks, however, were actually produced by the

AG filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Cook, Durand, Kiley, and others, the defendants began operating their scheme under other names, including those identified by the terms “Oxford” and “Universal Brokerage FX.” They then continued to solicit investors for the currency program, using telemarketing, media spots and seminars in which they repeated the false representations. Kiley, a former Christian radio host who had a show called “Follow the Money,” solicited investors for the scam through his radio talk show, which was carried on more than 200 stations across the country. On those programs, he regularly warned listeners to avoid financial ruin by giving their life savings to his company for investment. See PONZI, 11A

co-conspirators, the purpose being to lull investors or encourage them to make additional investments. At the same time, most investors received nothing from the true custodians of their funds. Although some investment funds were invested in foreign currency trading, most of that trading was high-risk, often resulting in significant losses, none of which was disclosed to investors. Moreover, the co-conspirators concealed that the currency trading firm in Switzerland was in dire financial condition and, instead, continued to solicit investor assets to be sent to the firm. Co-conspirators also concealed from investors their own concerns about Cook’s operation of the currency program and alleged illegalities surrounding it. In 2007, when UBS,

Students tour Washington, D.C.

Five students from local high schools in and around Dakota Electric Association’s service area recently returned from the 49th annual National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Rural Electric Youth Tour held June 14-20 in Washington, D.C.

(Photo submitted)

PONZI, from 10A Between 2005 and July 2009, the defendants, Cook, and others secured approximately $194 million in investments for the currency program. Of that amount, only about $109 million was actually sent to currency trading firms. About $52 million was paid to investors in the form of lulling payments, and approximately $30 million was diverted to fund the business and personal expenses of the defendants, Cook, and others. In August of 2010, Cook was sentenced to

25 years in federal prison for his role in the scam. On July 18, 2011, Jon Jason Greco pleaded guilty to two counts of making false statements to federal agents, specifically lying about assets he had concealed in the scam. He was sentenced to 10 months. Proceeds from the Cook fraud scheme are the subject of an ongoing investigation and recovery efforts led by the law firm Carlson, Caspers, Vandenburg, and Lindquist, through a previous appointment by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Michael Davis.

Farmington resident charged with second-degree murder In an Hennepin County criminal complaint filed Tuesday, a Farmington woman was charged with second-degree murder, first-degree assault and domestic assault by strangulation stemming from two incidents with her children in the past four years, according to multiple news reports. Ashleigh Jennifer Casey, 25, is accused of smothering her 3-monthold son to death in 2009 in St. Louis Park, and more recently holding a blanket over her 8-month-old daughter’s mouth until she stopped breathing. Her son’s death in 2009

was labeled “sudden infant death syndrome” by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, but when Casey’s daughter stopped breathing at the University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis in May while alone with Casey, police and authorities grew suspicious. According to the complaint, Casey allegedly admitted to St. Louis Park police placing a blanket over her son’s and daughter’s face until they stopped breathing. When asked why, she said she wanted them to get more attention from the doctors.

I-35E/Cedar Avenue ramp closure rescheduled for July 25

No failures in latest alcohol compliance checks

Motorists will encounter delays in both directions of Interstate 35E between Burnsville and Eagan as crews continue to repair the roadway. On July 25, crews will shift north and southbound traffic on I-35E between Cedar Avenue and Diffley Road to the southbound side of the roadway. The roadway will remain single lane head-to-head traffic up to the I35/35W/35E split until the end of July. At the same day and time the northbound I-35E ramps at Cedar Avenue will close. Motorists should follow the signed detour bypassing the closure. All work is weather permitting and could change for inclement weather.

The Rosemount Police Department completed its annual alcohol compliance checks on June 27 at 17 of the establishments licensed to sell alcohol in the city. All establishments passed. When performing compliance checks at an establishment, a police officer works with an underage person who attempts to purchase alcohol from a bar, restaurant, liquor store, grocery store, or other licensed outlet. If the clerk or server refuses the sale, the retailer passes the compliance check and is informed immediately by law enforcement personnel. Any retailer selling to an underage person during a check is immediately issued a citation and may be subjected to civil penalties through the city. The Police Department performs compliance checks on an annual basis in an effort to ensure establishments licensed to sell alcohol in the city are acting in accordance with state law.

Home builders are working hard to keep up with demand for single-family units in Residential construction of single-family homes is growing throughout Dakota CounDakota County. (Photo by Sarah Allen) ty, including work at Cobblestone Lake in Apple Valley. (Photo by Sarah Allen) RECOVERY, from 1A “There’s more work than we can do.” Residential construction workers are finding increased employment opportunities as the summer progresses.

Residential rise Recent statistics show that residential construction is racing to keep up with demand. The number of home building permits issued in the seven-county metro area are at a 12-month high, remaining ahead of every year since 2007, according to the Builders Association of the Twin Cities. At the same time, planned housing units in June are up by 64 percent since June 2012. Demand, interest and prices continue to rise, all positive signs for the residential construction community. Nationwide, consumer confidence is up. A Mayflower survey found that 47 percent of those polled are more comfortable purchasing a home today than at any other time in the past five years. Pent-up demand is rising and buyers are itching to move. Dakota County is a home-building hot spot among area counties.

Lakeville had the second highest building permits issued in the metro area and fourth in the state for June. As a city comprised of mostly of singlefamily homes, Lakeville is a high producer. With 20-25 new permits, Lakeville is constructing major housing developments including Spirit of Brandtjen Farms, Donnelly Farms and Country Joe Homes’ Crescent Ridge. Tami Erickson, Country Joe Homes sales and marketing coordinator, said Lakeville is filling with heritage-style homes. “Lakeville seems to have a lifestyle people want with parks, schools and walking paths,” Erickson said. Permits for single-family homes are up 60 percent for the year in the Twin Cities from 607 in 2012 to 980 in 2013, according to BATC. The typical buyers are families consisting of one spouse working full time and the other part time. They are seeking four bedrooms and flexible space for their growing families, according to Erickson. Other cities in Dakota County are supporting new residential construction, including work at Cobblestone Lake in Ap-

ple Valley, Prestwick Place in Rosemount, Stonehaven in Eagan, Riverbend in Farmington and several more. With a steady increase in public demand, Country Joe Homes has noticed growing opportunities to build beyond Dakota County. Although the market is showing positive signs, an increase of national construction companies coming through the metro causes smaller builders, such as Country Joe Homes, to remain cautiously optimistic.

Labor shortage Despite expanding employment, both residential and commercial construction businesses are facing a labor shortage. The Great Recession left thousands of contractors without jobs, and they have yet to return to the market. According to the Department of Employment and Economic Development, in 2006, Dakota County had a total of 11,676 construction jobs. Years after the apex of the Great Recession, Dakota County was left with 7,599 construction jobs in 2012. A depleted job pool leaves local builders with fewer resources for quality work.

Country Joe Homes hired a few different construction crews before finding the right ones. “We’ve hired a couple of framing crews but they are really hit and miss. They don’t always have the experience we need, and the same quality that we’re used to,” Erickson said. Increased prices on materials have affected residential contractor hiring. “We have concerns because the price of land and materials have gone up a lot this year,” Erickson said. “Builders that have remained in business are happy to be working but they are having a hard time with staffing,” said Wendy Danks, director of marketing at BATC. “There are not as many contractors in the field as there used to be.” With Minnesota companies searching for skilled employees, neither residential nor commercial construction are where they stood a decade ago. Minnesota is down 33,600 construction jobs since its peak in 2006, according to Associated General Contractors of Minnesota. Minnesota construction topped at 132,000 jobs in February 2006, and is down 25 percent to 98,400 in May

2013. When asked if the residential construction sector will recover, Danks said: “In the residential area, probably not. We will add jobs, absolutely. But there was a bubble going on. Ideally, we don’t want that to happen again.”

Slow recovery

County, including the recently completed Bus Rapid Transit Red Line running from Bloomington to Apple Valley. Contractors are planning roadwork throughout the fall such as at County Road 5 and Highway 13 in Burnsville and Dodd Boulevard in Lakeville. Plans are made to revamp a large section of the sanitary sewer that serves the cities of Burnsville and Savage and a portion of Lakeville in late 2013. Several park trails are also scheduled to be created and rehabilitated in Lakeville, Burnsville and Apple Valley throughout the year. Other big projects scheduled to increase construction work through the metro include the $975 million Minnesota Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis and a 20-year, $6 billion destination medical center involving Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester. The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development projects that the Central Minnesota construction sector will improve by 37.2 percent by 2020.

While residential construction companies continue to grow, commercial construction faces a tougher recovery. “It’s going to be difficult,” said David Semerad, chief executive officer at Associated General Contractors of Minnesota. “Contractors have learned how to do more with less and plus, non-residential construction is not recovering as fast as a lot of people have expected it to.” Semerad sees a positive future for commercial construction if funding is increased. “There’s lots of infrastructure to build: roads, bridges, water treatment facilities, and other public infrastructures,” he said. “Eventually, if we get the funding to (build), we will approach or surpass those numbers in 2006.” Numerous commercial Email Sarah Allen construction projects are dc.intern@ecm-inc.com. taking place in Dakota

13A tice in winter months, so the summer heat is most daunting to the band. George Tangen, one of four band leaders, anticipates long hours of marching through the heat to be worth the effort. “I do marching band because of the 204 other kids that are with me. I wouldn’t do it if it weren’t for the people I’ve met and the experiences I’ve had. ... We’re going to look back and say that the 90-degree weather was totally worth it for doing the parade,� Tangen said. To donate, visit the band’s website at www. rosemountband.com.

SUMMER, from 1A

When the bus is on time, the referees show up, the event staff is on schedule and everything is running smooth at an athletic event, then they’ve done their jobs. “It’s been interesting,� Summer said. “An AD wears many hats, whether it’s sports information, marketing or the business side of things.� Chaska is a familiar place for Summer. Farmington competes against Chaska in athletics and activities as fellow members of the Missota Conference. Summer has worked with the school district since Chaska joined the conference in 2010. “I’ve had a chance to meet some of their coaches, and I think there’s some outstanding things about the community,� Summer said. According to Farmington communications and marketing coordinator Jim Skelly, the district is reviewing the position and plans to begin accepting applications to replace Summer by the end of the week with the goal of having a candidate identified by mid-August.

ton, Summer oversaw the construction of a new Farmington High School building, which opened four years ago. Last school year Farmington was accepted into the South Suburban Conference for the 201415 school year. “Being involved and seeing those things come to fruition was a great thing,� Summer said. “I’m proud the school district found ways to grow as an athletic program. We’ve done a great job of responding to what kids need.� During his run, boys and girls lacrosse was added to the spring sports season. The soccer programs also added a B-squad and ninthgrade teams. “I’m not the only personal responsible for sure,� Summer said. “We had a lot of support. It was about having positive experiences for athletes, and getting as many kids involved as we can. All the programs have grown. The youth programs have gotten bigger.� Summer said the best way to tell if athletics and activities directors Email Andy Rogers at are doing their job is if andy.rogers@ecm-inc. people don’t notice them. com. YOUNG, from 1A ter and snacks throughout the 3 hour and 55 minute swim. Young says the last few miles were the hardest as his shoulders felt the fatigue. “Whenever I felt tired or beat up, I just thought about how tough my mom was,� Young said. “I knew she was with me the whole time.� Young’s mother, Barbara Vandergraft, died in December. She had lived with the disease for 37 years. “I think she survived so long because of her stubbornness and fighting attitude,� Young said. “She was strong-willed, tough both mentally and physically.� When his mother was diagnosed at the age of 41, the 13-year-old Young did not understand the severity of the disease. “I had never heard of it and she seemed healthy,� Young said. “But in a few years I noticed her develop issues with walking.� The disease progressed slowly, affecting Vandergraft’s balance and muscle control, though she stayed out of her walker and wheelchair as long as she could, Young said. Parkinson’s is a chronic neurological disease. As many as 1 million Americans are currently living with it and 60,000 are diagnosed each year. There is no cure. “Once you have it, it takes away everything from you,� Young said. Parkinson’s disease af-

fects the ability to see, talk, eat, walk, and can lead to dementia similar to that of Alzheimer’s disease. Vandergraft developed all of the disease’s major symptoms, though she didn’t let them get her down. “She was my hero,� Young said. When his mother’s health was declining last summer, Young decided he needed to do something. “I wanted to honor my mom and no one had ever swum the distance of the lake before,� Young said. Though he admits to hating swimming, Young, a seasoned triathlete, began training last November. He also started fundraising through the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, which was received with overwhelming generosity by friends and family. Young graduated from Rosemount High School in 1990. The Delta Airlines manager now lives in Atlanta, though he returned to his home state to swim in a special place – Lake Belle Taine near Nevis, Minn., where his great-grandfather built their family cabin in 1902. The family spent many summers at the lake cabin over the years. Young felt it was important to raise money for Parkinson’s research. He also wanted to raise awareness of the disease, which is often overshadowed by more prevalent diseases. “I think Parkinson’s gets less attention than other diseases because people can survive with it

ROSES, from 1A marching band members at the organization’s Eagan location. Later Saturday night, Jenkins presented the formal invitation and Tournament of Roses flag to the directors and drum majors at TCF Bank Stadium during the Drum Corps International Show. Jenkins and his wife, Cindy, plan to visit the hometown of all 12 marching bands selected to perform in the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade. Stops are around the U.S., Japan and Panama. Jenkins’ worldwide tour not only provides a formal invitation to each band, but offers help raising money for the band members. Between flights, lodging and food for a week, costs often add up to $2,000 per student for the trip to Pasadena. The costs require creative fundraising techniques and ideas, with support from scholarships provided to select students in need. The RHS Marching Band will host a silent auction in September, baking sales throughout the fall and much more. Jenkins spoke at the for a while,� Young said. “People aren’t that familiar with it.� All of the $7,200 raised by Young is going to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation. With the swim accomplished, Young looks ahead to future years of fundraising and says he wants to create a yearly fundraiser in his mother’s name but isn’t quite sure what that will be. Donations are still being accepted at Young’s fundraiser page at http:// support.pdf.org/ericyoungswim. Email Kristina Ericksen at kristina.ericksen@ecm-inc. com.

Sports Graff takes over for Farmington baseball Assistant, legion coach moves up to varsity head coach by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For the first time in 13 years, the Farmington varsity baseball team will have someone other than Mike Winters as head coach. Assistant varsity baseball coach Jon Graff is taking over as head coach for the Tigers next year. He’s no stranger to baseball or Farmington. Graff has coached in the school district for 17 years. For the past 11, he’s been with the baseball program. Graff has been a history teacher at Farmington High School since 1997 and he’s also coached soccer, basketball and football. He’s had a variety of influences, as-

sisting five different head coaches. “I think you learn a little bit from each one,” he said. “You see what you like and try to replicate it, and sometimes you see situations or how things are done and think about how you might handle it, or do things differently.” Graff has been with the baseball team for many highlights. “My favorite memories are, one, just getting out and coaching ball with all the kids that have come through the system,” he said. “But, a couple of specific moments have to be the two conference championships and our trips down to Arkansas as being things I’ll never forget.” His coaching style won’t be much different than what players have seen before.

He stresses defense and fundamentals. “I try to get the kids to have high baseball IQs so they can react quickly to any given situation accordingly,” Graff said. “Doing small things well is a great secret to success.” He plans on making some tweaks and implementing a throwing and workout program for high school players. “This should help build arm strength throughout the program and ensure healthy arms that don’t get injured easily,” he said. Graff also coaches the American Legion baseball team in Farmington so he’s well aware of the capabilities of the players. The varsity team finished 7-7 in the Missota Conference in the spring and ex-

In pursuit

pects to see many returning faces in 2014. “It even goes further as our youth programs are seeing higher numbers,” Graff said. “We’re also starting to coordinate the different leagues a little better and I look forward to working with those programs.” He’s planning on strengthening the relationship with the youth programs. “I want to teach kids the finer points of the game and help them develop fundamentally to help them reach their goals, whatever those might be,” Graff said. “I’ll always be an ambassador to the game, trying to generate interest, knowledge and respect for the game.” Email Andy Rogers andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Notebook: Mike Fritze is UM Crookston’s interim football coach by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Mike Fritze, who retired as Apple Valley High School’s head football coach after the 2012 season, will be on the sideline as a head coach in 2013 at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. He was appointed the Golden Eagles’ interim head coach when Paul Miller – also a former AVHS head coach – took a leave of absence for health reasons. The nature of Miller’s health concerns was not disclosed. Fritze was to be the team’s defensive coordinator this season. He had planned to join the Golden Eagles after the 2011 high school season before deciding to stay at Apple Valley one more year. In 2012, the Eagles went 8-3 and reached the state playoffs for the first time since 1993, when Apple Valley won its second state championship with Miller as head coach and Fritze as an assistant. The Golden Eagles have several players from local high schools on their roster, including defensive back Lethzee Calderon (Eastview), tight end Adam Eyton (Burnsville), offensive lineman Joe Machacek (Eagan) and defensive lineman Drew Selvestra (Eagan). Jake Neubauer, an offensive lineman from Bismarck, N.D., who played his final high school season at Rosemount, also is on the Crookston roster. The team will open its season with a home game against Upper Iowa on Sept. 6.

the University of Minnesota men’s basketball roster. The new head coach appears to be setting out to change that. Pitino recently signed forward Joey King, a former Eastview High School standout who played last season at Drake. King is expected to petition the NCAA for permission to play in 2013-14 because his transfer was for family reasons. If the petition is denied, he would not be eligible to play next season. Last week, Lakeville North senior-to-be J.P. Macura said he received a scholarship offer from Minnesota. The Gophers will have competition for Macura; other schools to offer him scholarships include Purdue, Butler and Iowa State. The 6-foot-4 guard had a breakout season in 2012-13, averaging 25.4 points for a Lakeville North team that reached the state Class 4A tournament. He scored 70 points in two regular-season games against eventual state champion Apple Valley.

She replaces Shelly Lundin, who stepped down after one year as head coach because she will move to Kazakhstan where her husband, former Apple Valley High School hockey player Mike Lundin, is playing professional hockey next season.

Wolff on Team USA Eagan High School defenseman Nick Wolff is on the USA Hockey Under-18 Select team that will play in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament beginning Aug. 5 in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Wolff (6-foot-4, 195 pounds) is one of six Minnesota players on the U.S. roster. He had four goals and 19 assists for Eagan last season. Teams from Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland also will play in the Hlinka tournament.

Heck goes to Jr. PGA Eagan resident and Visitation golfer Anni Heck finished first at the Minnesota Section Junior PGA Championship on July 11-12 at Chaska Town Course. The victory means she will represent Minnesota at the national Junior PGA tournament beginning July 30 in Potomac Falls, Va. Heck shot 69 in the first round of the 36-hole Minnesota tourney and held a five-stroke lead. She shot 79 the second day but birdied two of her final three holes to win by one stroke. She finished third in the Minnesota State Junior Girls Championship on July 8-9. In June, she tied for seventh at the state high school Class AA tournament.

Heather LaChapelle was named Apple Valley High School’s volleyball coach this week. Her name should be familiar to those who follow high school volleyball in the south metro; she played for Eagan’s 2001 and 2003 state championship teams. After graduating from Eagan in 2004, LaChapelle went to Carleton College where she was the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year in 2004 and All-MIAC in 2007.

AVHS names boys swim coach Apple Valley High School girls swimming head coach Scott Pearson was named Tuesday to lead the school’s boys swimming program. Pearson replaces Mike McManus, who retired from teaching and coaching in June. Pearson had been a longtime assistant boys swimming coach at AVHS. He has been girls head coach since 2006 and will continue in that role. “Mike McManus served as the best role model and coach that I

have worked with,” Pearson said in a news release from the school. “Continuing his legacy in swimming at AVHS while developing a new team identity will be a major goal in the transition as the new coach. I look forward to the opportunity. Pearson is math trainer and assessment coordinator for Independent School District 196 and is responsible for professional development, technology assistance and Minnesota testing assessments.

Medallion hunt to start Monday, July 22 This year’s Leprechaun’s Lost Medallion Hunt will start on the first Monday of Rosemount Leprechaun Days, which runs from July 19-28. The medallion hunt will start at 9 a.m. Monday, July 22, when the first clue is released on the front door of Sterling State Bank, 4520 150th St. W., corner of County Road 42 and Diamond Path, and online at www.SunThisweek.com. Sterling State Bank is offering a $500 cash prize to the winner. The hunt has enough clues, in limerick format (a nod to the city’s Irish heritage), to have it run until the festival ends Sunday, July 28. Over the years, the medallion has taken on various shapes, sizes and colors. It’s been green to blend in with grass, red when attached to a fire hydrant and made of wood when placed on a bench. Medallion-seekers should note that this tradition will continue, along with it being hidden on city of Rosemount park property that can be seen and reached by even the youngest of hunters. Hunters should note that they won’t have to move, damage or destroy park

property in order to find the medallion. Official rules and a picture of the prize will be posted at clue central at SunThisweek.com and on the front door of the bank. Clues will be published every morning at 9 a.m. at the entrance to Sterling State Bank and on the newspaper’s website. Last year’s winners were Ty, 7, and Aubrey, 5, Hansen of Rosemount, along with a little help from their parents Heidi and Eric. Ty Hansen found the medallion at the base of a tree in Carrolls Woods Park, which was named for former landowners and farmers Don and Mary Carroll. The tree was next to one of the paved walking paths. “We couldn’t believe it,” Heidi Hansen said. “I didn’t think there was going to be any way we were going to find it since we saw so many other people out who looked more expert than us.” In 2011, the medallion was found by the Tucker and Feldsien families of Rosemount in Jaycee Park under a pine tree near the parking lot. The winners were Cole, Korley, and Clay Tucker and Maya and Wyatt Feldsien.

Naomi was a stray at 4 years old. She is perfectly housebroken and a real lady in the house. She can be bossy so best as an only dog or a dog friend that is submissive to her. She is good with kids but best in a home with kids 10 and up that are not so hyper. She is not high energy so this would make a great townhouse dog too. Adoption fee: $275. Call Kathy at 651-402-6223 to meet Naomi or see her at the Burnsville Petco and other dogs at the Apple Valley Petco this Saturday from 11-3. She will go fast!

Bluegrass brings brothers together Rosemount’s Sawtooth featured at bluegrass festival by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Rosemount Bluegrass Americana Festival this weekend will feature some familiar faces. Rosemount’s own Sawtooth bluegrass band returns to this year’s festival as the closing act on Saturday, July 20, at the city’s Central Park Amphitheater. The five-piece band features two sets of brothers – Clint, Luke and Shane Birtzer of Rosemount, along with Jesse and Ethan Moravec of Rochester – and combines traditional and contemporary bluegrass, classic country and even a dash of 70s-era rock. Sawtooth took first place at the 2008 Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association’s “Race for a Place” band contest, and last summer saw the release of “Gunflint Trail,” the band’s fourth album. This newspaper spoke recently with fiddler Luke Birtzer about the band’s influences, the appeal of bluegrass and what the future holds for Sawtooth. How did the band get its name? We are named after the Sawtooth Mountains in northeastern Minnesota. That region has long been a favorite spot for us to camp, canoe and fish, so we were proud to

take it as the name of our band. Who are some of the band’s musical influences? We are inspired as a band by Bill Monroe, Dailey and Vincent, the Grascals, and Nickel Creek, to name a few. And we have also been guided by Monroe Crossing, whose mandolin player is the step-dad of the three Birtzer brothers. Why bluegrass? What’s appealing to you about the genre? Personally, bluegrass has always impressed me with its down-to-earth nature and musicianship. I think the genre boasts some of the finest musicians, singers and songwriters in the world that play music from the heart. I think newcomers to it would be surprised at how dynamic it is. What’s it like playing with your brothers in a band – any sibling rivalry? There may have been some sibling rivalry early on, but we’ve grown past that. I believe working together as a band has matured us all greatly. What do the five members of Sawtooth do when they’re not rehearsing and performing? When we’re not performing, you might find us fishing together or playing games together. Otherwise, we’re at our other jobs. Luke and Shane work

The Okee Dokee Brothers will be bringing their kids-oriented folk and bluegrass music to Apple Valley’s Galaxie Library on Friday, July 26. The Grammy-winning duo comprised of Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing caters to young audiences with its witty lyrics and off-the-wall humor. The concert runs from 10:30-11:15 a.m. and there’s no cost to attend. More information is at www.co.dakota.mn.us/libraries. (Photo submitted)

at LearningRx as brain trainers, Clint works at the U of M, and Ethan plays bass for his church, Substance. This fall, Luke goes to Hamline University for digital media arts, Clint and Ethan go back to the U of M for journalism and mathematics, respectively, and Jesse has already completed another linguistics degree. Is the band planning another album after “Gunflint Trail?” What does the future hold? We will be playing music as much and for as long as we can. So naturally, we will be heading back into the studio again, but we have not formally decided when. • The Rosemount Bluegrass Americana Festival runs this weekend, July 18-21, in Central Park. The full lineup of performers is at www.bluegrassamericanaweekend. com. Bluegrass fans will have other chances to see Sawtooth this summer. The band is scheduled to play the Forest Lake bluegrass festival on July 27, and on Aug. 10 Sawtooth will take the stage of the Olde Pine Theatre in Pine Island. More about the band is at www. sawtoothbluegrass.com.
